 The front wheel hubs and bearings, including wheel speed sensors, are failing on these pickups. this is, apparently, a known issue and gm refuses to do anything about it. why not? this is a blatant safety issue.

 Abs sensor reads incorrectly and triggers the abs system to kick in every time the brakes are used, causing the brake pedal to rumble and giving the sensation of brake failure when the pedal goes soft under your foot. this is worse when turning left. extra distance is required for braking at all times. abs warning light comes on at random times for no apparent reason.
